After his apprenticeship, Sergio Petrozzi worked as a chemical lab technician at the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry ETHZ (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) and at the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Sciences and Technology (EAWAG), Switzerland. After acquiring his federal diploma (Diplom Hohere Fachprufung), he joined the Institute of Chemical Engineering ETHZ where he gained great experience as teaching assistant in laboratory courses. His daily routine focused among other topics, on the following topics at the ETHZ in Zurich: Development, optimization and validation of analytical methods. He subsequently worked as an application chemist at Buchi Labortechnik AG, Flawil (Switzerland) with a focus on the validation of applications for environmental determinations. He has authored numerous publications in international journals and is presently employed as a Scientific Associate at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences ZHAW, Wadenswil (Switzerland), where, among other things, he is teaching adviser in analytical chemistry laboratory at the Institute for Chemistry and Biological Chemistry (ICBC).
